Reading Buddies and Bunnies

First and Second class have been very busy this term learning lots of new things. They really enjoyed developing their reading skills during our six weeks of ”Reading Buddies”. Each child had a buddy from Fifth or Sixth Class who spent the time engaging in book talk, reading and reviewing their books with them.

They also spent time exploring and creating in Clay during our Art lessons. They created and painted clay tiles, analysed what worked well such as thickness of clay and size of tiles and used this information to help design their love heart candle holders.

They spent time exploring length and weight in maths using standard and non-standard units of measurements. Children also wrote their own acrostic poems for Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s day.

For Easter they created their own Easter Bunny Silhouette using chalk pastels and black sugar paper.
